. what's wrong with this country? >> reporter: sandy is on track to be the second-costliest storm in u.s. history. some estimates say it may cost $50 billion to rebuild. with more than 4.1 million customers still without power across a dozen states, temperatures are expected to dip into the mid to upper 30s over the weekend. this morning, "the wall street journal" reports fema has generators sitting in storage while families like this mother and daughter, living 17 flights up, are without power. telling our diane sawyer, their water is now running out, too. >> that's all the water we have left. >> it's almost gone. >> reporter: and the generators and use of them are a real question. so many feel there should be an all-hands-on-deck feeling for a disaster this large, when they hear about generators not being used properly or sitting idle, and they see generators like this story in the "post" these are two this morning, two giant generators sitting for the new york city marathon right in the middle of central park. now, they are not being used right now. not being plugged in but when you s
bloodshed, bullets, we did it without people with boots and badges dragging us through the streets. of course, now, the hand wringing begins as republican whine about mitt romney's campaign or mitt romney himself. look, romney won the primary and he earned the right to carry our banner. in his campaign they gave it all they had and i don't agree with those who said that the obama message of bigger government and more taxes won. it was not an election about a message. it was an election about the machinery to get out the votes for president obama. and it was a masterful, methodical effort. now, as i listened to a lot of fellow television and radio talk show hosts or even read the opinion columns of those who excoriated romney, a couple of things occurred to me. if you weren't critical of mitt romney and his campaign the day before the election, then don't be a phony and be critical the day after. also, i noted that the loudest critics were the people who have never once put their own names on a ballot for anything. and since some seem to have a perfect insight into how to run a camp

finish to his bid for re-election. and jake tapper joins us from chicago. you tell me the last couple days have been emotional ones for the president. >> reporter: they have been emotional. i'm standing in the arena, where likely this evening, president obama will either declare victory or concede defeat. it's been emotional. president obama tearing up after seeing the former aides and advisers, joining him on the trail. one adviser comparing it to the lost episode of a tv series, when all of the characters join for that show. that's not to say they feel this is the end. they feel optimistic. they feel a little bit of wind at their back. the president and first lady arrived in chicago at around 1:00 this morning. spending the night in their hyde park house. their return to the windy city caps a whirlwind push on monday. it culminated in an emotional rally in front of 20,000 iowans, just a few yards away from his former campaign headquarrs in 2007-2008. >> to all of you who lived and breathe the hard work of change, i want to thank you. >> reporter: less than an hour before, the presid
this morning at the brooklyn bridge for us. hey, rob, good morning! >> reporter: good morning, soledad. there'll be a lot of foot traffic once again over this bridge. and if you are in a car, you'll need at least three people in that vehicle. carpooling is going to be the call today, because yesterday, there was absolute gridlock across the city. we didn't have much in the way of bus lines running. these subways were still shut down. all the people that would typically travel underground were trying to get to work aboveground. and boy, some places, there was chaos. i mean, people pushing and shoving, just to try to get on a bus. many buses that were traveling past 10th and 14th street weren't even stopping, because they were already full. so hopefully they get more buses up and rung today. cabs will have to double up. the tunnels into the city are still shut down, except for one. they've got to pump the water out. subways north of 34th street will be up and running today. hopefully that will alleviate some of the problems. of course, the power downtown, where we are for the most part is still
much of the u.s. cable coverage that i was seeing about the drug war, especially in this part of the country, to me seemed woefully decontextualized. it felt like rubbernecking body count journalism. x number of people were shot on the state. this person was be headed there, but no context. no background, no history, the deepening of the story. i'm by no means a expert on mexico's drug war, but i did have a very strong interest in this region and in. i began researching as early as -- in itjuana. i began researching in 2007 while looking for another story. unlike other journalists, who do not have the amount of time that you often need to tell the stories, when i was in production i had a little over two years to spend with the story. that is enough time to deepen your sense of a place, an institution, to gain trust and to hopefully have a deeper narrative. whether or not i succeeded at -- or failed is up to the audience and the people who push back on my perspective, but for me the ability to spend time with an issue, too deep and your understanding of that issue, provide the
of coverage because we are still or some of us are still so devastated by it. i think overall the media is going to move on to the election. there is going to be a second day story on mayor bloomberg's decision not to cancel the marathon. it's a big debate this weekend. >> i just have to give a shout out our fox forecasters who on thursday before the storm was going to hit how bad it could be. eric whimple apparently slammed her and said, given what we know about the storm, as it makes its way to land fall is it too vindicate dean and her employer. no way. more whimple you are not a meteorologist and janice did a great job. >> next on news watch, hurricane sandy spins over the east coast and the media spin and the coverage. >> hurricane sandy pounds the east coast. did the wall to wall coverage of the devastation drown out coverage of the campaign? and the media turned a spotlight on obama post storm efforts but what did the media give governor romney. answers next on news watch.

just describe it. by the way, i wish you had not reminded liberals that many of us don't think they've done so well in trying to destroy me because more than any book i've ever written, i have never had a book so ignored by the mainstream media. [laughter] i always make -- this is one thing i changed my mind about. i've maintained ferociously liberals can't learn that if you cut taxes, there's revenue to the treasury, can't learn it doesn't work to coddle and suck up to terrorists, but, apparently, they can learn if they attack ann coulter, she sells more books. [laughter] i love those gals on "the view," and i wanted to kiss them all before i left. [laughter] you know, i realize that people who are familiar with the actual history of civil rights in america or who have read my books notice that they had not read the books, but that was great because they believe everything the "new york times" believes, but the new york times won't argue with me. at least the gals on "the view" will argue with me. the summary of the book is white guilt never produced anything good, and don't make t
